Congratulations on the success your school has achieved in increasing student achievement in the area of algebra. Considering the ways in which your school's current focus on increasing achievement in algebra might align with Response to Intervention (RTI) seems to be a very appropriate next step. RTI is frequently described as a process or a framework with different components designed to address the academic and behavioral needs of students. These components usually include universal screening, a continuum of interventions also referred to as tiered interventions, and progress monitoring. As a framework, schools sometimes begin with a focus on selected components and create different timelines toward their goal of implementing RTI. For example, schools may elect to screen rising ninth graders in the area of reading; they may subsequently, create a reading class in which selected students would enroll as an elective. They might also decide to systematically monitor school attendance and develop strategies for improving attendance and participation for targeted students as a way to help facilitate increased achievement.
It can be particularly helpful for schools to implement an RTI Planning Team to help develop procedures such as scheduling students to receive interventions and determining when sufficient progress has occurred such that the intervention is no longer required. In forming an RTI Planning Team, it may be helpful for school leaders to consider such factors as those areas of the curriculum that are a priority for developing interventions and the use of existing teams. For example, if teachers are already meeting to focus on algebra, the agenda topics might be expanded to focus on such logistics as scheduling. Formalizing an RTI Planning Team can help to facilitate systematic and consistent approaches in such key areas as scheduling and reviewing student progress. Another action that the RTI Planning Team might undertake is to recommend strategies for examining the effectiveness of the core instructional program; this is particularly helpful if the number of students requiring interventions seems high relative to overall student enrollment.
ASCD has published two books on RTI that you might find helpful: What Every School Leader Needs to Know about RTI and Enhancing RTI: How to Ensure Success with Effective Classroom Instruction and Intervention. You may also want to watch for an upcoming ASCD publication that I have coauthored with Cynthia Warger titled Building Your School's Capacity to Implement RTI; we expect it to be available by February.
